HC reserves order on Nirmal Baba's petition

May 22, 2012 14:31 IST

The Patna high court on Tuesday reserved its order on self-proclaimed godman Nirmal Baba's plea challenging the legality of the non-bailable arrest warrant issued by a court in Araria in Bihar against him.

Justice S P Singh reserved the order on the application. The court of Araria Chief Judicial Magistrate Satyendra Razak had issued a warrant of arrest on Saturday on the basis of an FIR filed on April 21 by complainant Rakesh Kumar Singh who alleged the Baba forced him to pay Rs 1,000 in three instalments between January and March 2011 on promise of fame and fortune.

According to Araria Superintendent of police Shivdeep Lande, the accusation was found prima facie true following which he directed the investigating officer to move the court and seek a warrant of arrest.
